Essay Overview
A discourse community analysis essay offers insight into WHY specific aspects of a community (such as a
community’s language practice, beliefs, values, actions, purposes, culture, identity, etc…) are unique to the
community itself and WHY these characteristics make the community important and significant to YOU and
to the larger society.
For this project, you will:
1. Examine and analyze aspects of a single community; specifically, you will focus your analysis on the
“discourse” which makes up your chosen community. Discourse includes language practices, beliefs,
values, actions, purposes, culture, identity, etc….
2. Compose an essay which analyzes the discourse and aspects of a community, examining how each
aspect influences the discourse community, as well as how each aspect influences or impacts the larger
society.
3. Build your analysis using information from your interview experience (the transcriipt, as well as your
own interpretations of your interviewee and your ideas, thoughts, opinions, etc…).
* Keep in mind that you will record your interview and transcribe sections that you find most
important for your analysis.
Your essay will:
1. Examine the rhetoric, language practices, and/or communicative pathways used by a specific
community or culture, as well as other aspects of this community (values, beliefs, actions, identity, etc…)
2. Create useful insights for your audience to use to help them better understand your chosen community
and, perhaps, see this community in a new and more meaningful way.
3. Build your analysis through direct examples/excerpts from your interview experience and
transcriiption. And, if you find it necessary, you may use articles to support your analysis, but outside
research is not required.
4. USE YOUR OWN AUTHENTIC VOICE TO CONVEY YOUR THOUGHTS AND IDEAS (*I care about
how you understand and perceive your chosen community. I care about your thoughts and ideas and
working with you to develop these ideas. You do not need to “put on” an academic voice but write from a
more authentic place, using your own voice (whatever that means to you) to compose your essay*).
